for president obama. governor romney has got a lock in florida. that has not happened 100%. i think governor romney has more to look for the reagan romney again has to win virginia. it is possible to win the presidency if you do not win virginia, but it gets tough. those are states where there has been an assumption that governor romney will go with those states. he does not have them locked in just yet, and you start to talk about ohio, wisconsin, new hampshire, and nevada, they are very favorable for the president right now. it is tough for governor romney. he has got to have a global win. it cannot just be trying to figure out some mix of states to try to get to 270. there is a final push for the country decides they are ready to hire him and fire president obama. tavis: we talked earlier about this notion of being careful, how you walk this tightrope when you have a storm that is vexing so much of the country, but there are some issues in this storm the obama campaign could raise. i suspect they are smart not to raise it. when a candidate says, let's get rid of fema and send the money ba
the new jersey governor, a top romney surroga surrogate, heeds praise on president obama. >> the president called me. i appreciate that call from the president. it was very proactive and i appreciate that type of leadership. the president is great. i spoke to him three times yesterday pep called me for the last time at midnight last night. asked me what i needed. i said if you could expedite the major declaration without the fema mumbo jumbo. i got a call from fema at 2 a.m. the president has been all over this and he deserves great credit. i was on the phone with him yesterday three times personally. he gave me his number at the white house. told me to call him. and he absolutely means it. the president has been outstanding in this. so the folks at fema, craig fugate and his folks have been excellent. >> the president deserves great credit. he's been outstanding. a republican praising a democrat. but the powerful fact is this wasn't about politics. this was genuine thanks to a president focused on taking care of americans. president obama has canceled all campaign events through tomorrow
many times have you seen president obama, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one we
has a shot as long as they can win over one key demographic. >> president obama and governor romney faced off. many polls showing them running neck in neck, making the remaining undecided voters more important than ever. >> the undecided voters. the voters in the swing states who could decide this election. >> mitt romney and barack obama yearn for their vote, the elusive mysterious undecided voter. (laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if. (laughter) folks, folks, here's how it stands. the electoral kitchen is closing in two weeks and they still can't decide if they want the black-and-white cookie or the decaf wheat thin. (laughter) they're elusive! but we know that they're out there! these campaigns have spent billions of dollars trying to capture them with lawn signs, t.v. ads, radio spots, internet banners, robocalls and, for some lucky ohio voters, an amorous david axelrod with a rose in his teeth. (laughter) but a few and the liesing facts about these mysterious creatu
or proper for either president obama or governor romney to return to the campaign trail. they're operating with very little information. we can't know at this point just how devastating the damage might turn out to be. as a result i think both campaigns are being very cautious about what they do other than paying attention to the storm. >> woodruff: susan, what's your read on how the campaigns are dealing with all this? >> i think there are two things to look at. one is just the logistics, for instance, does this storm affect early voting that's going on now in ohio and north carolina and virginia? but a second thing is the larger atmospherics. what is the effect of having president obama go off the campaign trail back to the white house? the white house just this afternoon released a photo of him meeting in the situation room to get an update on storm damage. it seems to me that has an impact on a race where governor romney has been making some progress in recent days. does this kind of freeze things for where they are now. >> woodruff: that's what i wanted to ask you, susan. does one can
. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president obama canceled his events through wednesday to monitor the aftermath in response to hurricane sandy from the white house. we have team coverage here tonight. rick leventhal on the devastated jersey shore. shannon green on the storm damage in virginia, and ed henry tonight from the white house on the storm's political impact and the campaigns that are, tonight, frozen in place. many east coast residents heard or read weather forecasts and there's speculation about hybrid storms of the hurricane and nor'easter, perhaps, a super storm, as sandy approached, and they were understandably skeptical of what often turns out to be exaggerated meteorological storm forecasts. tonight they and millions of others find themselves suffering through what has turned out to be the mass devastation, wreckage, and misery that had been forecast for the eastern seaboard. fox news correspondent rick leventhal has our report from point pleasant, new jersey. >> reporter: point pleasant beach is one of many seaside c
that president obama is going to increase taxes, where, where governor romney is not if he's elected president. that's an important issue distinction. coming into the last debate, the annenberg survey showed that the public thought that governor romney was more likely to take the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a callated strategy on his part. now, you uld y, "d it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgo
events. >> exactly. >> obama: i have spoken to all of the governors in all of these states we have pre-positioned assets so that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. >> and everybody on the local level have backed that up. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number to call that's 1-800-steph-1-2. let's talk to don in florida about privatizing fema. hey, don. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. i have a political strategy for ohio actually a democratic one. but romney is trying to do whatever he can to get any press coverage he can possibly get. these food thing, i heard he called these governors and all of this stuff. i know he has been running for president for the last 20 years it seems, he wouldn't even be in the picture but he is just trying to get his name out there, because obama and the storm will get all of the reaction. >> and it seems like him calling the governors would be just getting in the way. >> and what a coincidence he is doi
president obama and governor romney put the bricks on the campaign until sandy is over. abc's jake tapper explains. >> reporter: president obama was a no show to his own rally in orlando, florida, this morning, whisked away on air force one to get ahead of the worst of hurricane sandy, and to warn those in its path. >> when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. >> reporter: the white house eager to show the president looking in command released these two photographs meeting with advisers preparing for the storm. between his and mitt romney's campaigns, 30 events have been canceled. two events went on without the president. including one in youngstown, ohio where many former president clinton and vice president biden got a firsthand feel for the storm's winds. those heavy winds and rain may impact early voting in ohio and four other contested states are directly in the storm's path also with early voting. s president is not scheduled to be back on the campaign trail till wednesday but that like everything else this week is subject to cancellation. diane? >> all right, jake, than
appreciate your generosity. >> while calling president obama's response to the storm outstanding, governor chris christie had this to say about sandy's effect on the election. >> it doesn't matter a lick it to me at the moment. i have much bigger fish to fry than that. >> joining me now is democratic strategy chris kofinis and erin mcpike. you heard governor christie. i think other words that a lot of people feel right now. we know the importance of the election. after all, this is the presidency we're discussing here, but at this point when you see new video like what came out of new jersey in the last few minutes, we have one week to deal with the election, but right now people are hurting. >> that's right. there was a rumor yesterday that mitt romney might go to new jersey to survey some of the damage. chris christie was asked about that. he essentially brushed that off and wasn't interested. he was interested in working with the president in relief efforts and didn't want to see presidential politics in new jersey. i thought that comment was more important that mitt romney can't show u
. it quotes president obama and governor romney yesterday but what do you think about how it works right now? caller: well, i forgot to tell you, that is what my mother said. she said we should have had -- the federal government should have had shelter and aid for the people that were fleeing. i agree with her there. the government should be involved. but on the outskirts to begin with. because they don't know what is happening on the inside lines. host: were you watching the mayors and governors yesterday as they held press conferences? >> you know what? my mom is fixated on it and i saw it for a couple of days. but when the storms started coming in and today i looked for a couple of secrets and saw one inch of rain and thought i'm not going to get caught up in it. but i do have feelings for the folks. i hope all of their property and family and friends are safe. host: a little more from the piece in the "washington post." congress has broadened fema's authority so it can respond in advance of major storms instead of waiting for governors to request aid after a disaster strikes the measures
on a conference call with president obama, 10 governors, and other mayors. >> he indicated he is prepared to make sure they cut through all the red tape so that federal assistance if needed will be made immediately available. if people have any difficulty getting through the federal apparatus to call them directly ourselves. >> the city is getting back to normal in the schools and the government will make it back on tomorrow. they are restoring power but for one family that will not solve their problems. >> this is the hole where the tree came from. this is what is left from the tree and that is their home there. power was restored in this neighborhood just about an hour ago. the mayor has praised the power crews and the sea saying we should do something to help new york since they have been devastated in he will do whatever they think we should need to do to help. live from northwest washington, sam ford abc 7 news. >> sandy has moved inland. up and down the east coast, the storm left a lot of decimation. >> what is next for us? we turn to doug hill for the latest. what's the latest here is what
for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican base and at events he's been holding. does this affect that in some way that would be detrimental to him? ese are all he questions that we n't answer tight. >> woruff: because we just don't know when they're going to be back on the trail. there's no way to gauge that. >> that's exactly right. i mean, we obviously know they'll be back out at some point later in the week. but we don't know quite they will be able to go. we don't know what states they won't be able to visit that they had planned to visit in the final stretch of this. the campaign manager for president obama was on a conference call today and a reporter from north carolina said, will we see the president back in north carolina before next
it but. anyway, in a poll showing that people have all right voted so that the governor is ahead by six points 52 percent to 46 percent. early voters helped obama win in 2008 what if they are doing the reverse in 2012? karl rove is looking at this. what do you make of this, karl? karl: as you say those who have voted one in six voters who said they voted they gave mitt romney a six-point margin, less than one out of five voters say they are going to vote before election day, they split evenly between president obama and governor romney which tends to indicate that at least the enthusiastic el her voters are republican and the democrats have a prove with a lack of enthusiasm among their people and finally on election day the people would plan, just less than two-thirds 63 percent plan to vote on election day, they split for governor romney by the same number six points 51 to 45 percent so at least according to gallup this looks good. it is also borne out by if you look at the battleground state roughly 11 million, rather, 11 percent advantage for democrats either voting early or casting

along the east coast, its impact is being felt on the campaign trail as well. today both president obama and governor mitt romney announced that they've cancelled campaign rallies that were scheduled for both tonight and tomorrow and each of the candidates spent time today talking about the significant weather event. >> obviously everybody is aware at this point that this is going to be a big and powerful storm, and all across the eastern seaboard i think everybody is taking the appropriate preparations. >> speaking today with the national weather service and with folks at fema as they're preparing for the landfall of a very, very dangerous hurricane. it's going to affect a lot of families. it already has, and the damage will probably be significant, and of course, a lot of people will be out of power for a long time, and so hopefully your thoughts and prayers will join with mine and people across the country as you think about those folks that are in harm's way. >> so is monster storm sandy the october surprise of 2012? joining me now to talk about the impact of the storm and much more

. meanwhile, president obama and governor romney canceled more campaign plans, essentially freezing the race in place with just seven days to go. could sandy reset the tone of the race in the final hours? or even delay the election? >>> and that broken construction crane, folks, it's still dangling, dangerously high above the streets of midtown manhattan. the latest on that and much more in minutes. we've got that live briefing from mayor michael bloomberg that comes up in this hour. good morning from washington. it's still one week until election day, believe it or not, tuesday, october 30th, 2012, this is the "daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. let's get right to what we know this hour. at least 18 people have been killed, early estimates, but the damage from sandy at somewhere between $10 billion and $20 billion, but that figure could rise as people assess in the daylight. nearly 8 million people waking up without power this morning. sandy made landfall as what's being called a post tropical cyclone on the southern coast of new jersey not too far from atlantic city at about 8:00 p.m., sustai

? >> unfortunately not. but last night after midnight i talked to president obama, i talked to governor christie, been talking to numerous people here on the ground, who are in charge of that. everybody knows the urgency. everybody knows, especially when you have dense populations, and a lot of people are really reliant for medical reasons on power, that you get a sense of urgency to get this done. i don't have any more specific updates. i just do know that everybody from the federal, state, local level, that's one of the major missions today. secondary obviously to keeping everybody immediately safe. because there are many, many hazards in the streets. many downed power lines. so many flooded areas, and people still principally important and we're asking people to stay home. to stay out of the way so power crews, emergency responders, and others can get their work done. >> let me ask you a quick question before i let you go. we're looking at pictures from yesterday in atlantic city where the 234r50ding was very bad. what happens to election day? you know it's a week from today. you may not have

the differences between president obama and former governor romney. >> mayor reed, to professor peterson's point, you need compassion, yes, but you also need funding, and you need fema, and you need support. now, i wonder, sir, if you would just listen to mr. romney's discourse here on federal disaster management. take a listen, sir. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case by case basis and some people who say maybe we're learning a lesson here that the states should take on more of this role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> mayor reed, everyone acknowledges the role and importance of the private sector. as mayor of a major city, you do. with all due respect to mr. romney, if the private sector was to great at disaster response, why aren't they doing it already? the whole point of having government is to take the role that the private sec

counties in new jersey. president obama keeping in close touch with new jersey governor chris christy himself touring the damage across the state. in that tour, you can see homes submerged in sand left over after flood waters receded. boats up on bridges and a famous roller coaster in seaside heights now out to sea. three million in the state still without power and atlantic city still under mandatory evacuation. flooding is still evident here and businesses have yet to get back off the ground. we are told by many that they are hopeful to be back in business by thursday. a process that could take months and could stack up to be tho billions of dollars. >> meanwhile mary thompson is in pottsville, pennsylvania. >> this distribution center serves 116 stores in six states. it is being loaded with emergency supplies headed for eastern maryland which was hit by the storm surge as well as the rain. other goods that are needed for the post-recovery process. they will be the last things loaded on the truck so they are the first thing off the truck when it hits that affected area. preparation
of a conference call with president obama and other mayors and governors. >> first the president once again underscored his commitment to doing everything possible to help in every state and city that has been affected by sandy. he indicated that he is prepared to make sure we cut through all the red tape so that the federal assistance as needed which of course is need more by some than others, will be made immediately available. and he indicated this could have been a lot worse. he said i'm looking out my window and i see there's a mess out here but all my people are at work. so it looks like things are moving along. >> reporter: the d.c. government and schools closed two days, are to reopen on wednesday. and early voting will resume. the city also has canceled a controversial $15 surcharge for any taxi cab ride. >> we'll work to get things moving back as they should be. >> reporter: during this tour, the mayor was glad to see that the flood prone neighborhood of bloomingdale in near northwest made it through without serious damage. city work crews had spent several days in advance, cleari
